Where did all the Little Elm ISD Buses Go?

After 36 years of occupying a site in the central part of the town, Little Elm ISD has moved its bus fleet to a new location 2.5 miles west of that location. Phase one of the Little Elm ISD Transportation and Operations Facility is located on Hill Lane and West Dickson Lane off of West Eldorado Parkway. This includes enough parking for the current fleet of 52 buses, additional district vehicles, two portable buildings for transportation and operation offices, a covered work area for vehicle maintenance, and temporary fencing.

“We are working with the town regarding road expansions and improvements to the entrances and exits to this area,” said Rick Martin, executive director for Construction Services. “This also includes conducting studies on the need for any possible traffic signals.”

Transportation officials do not expect significant delays for bus riders on Monday. “The first day, we may have a little slow down because this is a new place for the drivers,” said JW Barrett, general manager for Goldstar Transportation, the District’s transportation provider. “We encourage our families to download the free SafeStop app to track your child’s bus.”

As Goldstar continues to adapt to its new location, phase two of the construction continues. This will include more parking for additional buses, employee parking, and a 13,000 square foot transportation and operations building.

“This is a monumental time for Little Elm ISD as we continue to add new construction to accommodate the tremendous growth in our District,” said Daniel Gallagher, superintendent of Little Elm ISD. “Next month, we will be breaking ground on our two new middle schools, Jerry R. Walker and Lowell H. Strike Middle Schools. Walker Middle School will be adjacent to the new Transportation and Operations facility and it will look amazing once all of it is complete."
